    In other words:
"There is no example so bad that it cannot be used as a bad example."

    Actually, the author of that saying is a humorist named Ashleigh Brilliant (www.ashleighbrilliant.com). He wrote (in one of his epigrams):

"It's possible that my whole purpose in life is to serve as a warning to others."

Demotivators (www.despair.com) adapted it in a satiric poster that says: "It could be that the purpose of your life is only to serve as a warning to others" with a picture of a ship sinking.

It's one of those sayings that is meant humorously, but like all good humor, there's a certain amount of truth in feeling that way sometimes...

Ashleigh Brilliant has had a long, hard fight to keep his copyrighted material from being used by others, but he's so witty that people cannot help but cadge some of his sayings for their own purposes.

I use his "Pot-Shots" in my blogs almost every time (I have copyright permission to use them). He's AWESOME!

    Oh my! The overwhelming lesson I've learned is that sometimes, even though I may not realize it, my actions or words may have a profound affect on someone. That is something to always keep in mind!

Happy Easter! HUGS

    I struggle figuring out my purpose in life. I'm not good at introspective stuff.

    That seems so sad.
